    Picked up my babies on Saturday... 2 EE's and 1 Black Sex Link who are all 2 weeks old, and 1 Buff Orpington and 1 Dominque both only 3 days old. I couldn't help but pick a 2 week old Black Sex Link who was the same size as the 3 day old chicks, I've always had a thing for runts.
    This morning my honey pointed out that he thought she was sick, and she was gone by early afternoon. So sad. Guess picking the sickliest doesn't come with the greatest survival rate. :(

    I'm sorry you lost her. :hugs
    It's always sad to hear about chicks who don't make it, sadly not all of them can.
